Tilghman Island Profile


Overview

Tilghman Island is a tiny coastal town (i.e. on the ocean, a bay, or inlet) located in the state of Maryland. With a population of 755 people and just one neighborhood, Tilghman Island is the 232nd largest community in Maryland.

Housing costs in Tilghman Island are among some of the highest in the nation, although real estate prices here don't compare to real estate prices in the most expensive communities in Maryland.

Occupations and Workforce

Because occupations involving physical labor dominate the local economy, Tilghman Island is generally considered to be a blue-collar town. 36.59% of the Tilghman Island workforce is employed in blue-collar occupations, compared to the national average of 27.7%. Overall, Tilghman Island is a town of service providers, production and manufacturing workers, and managers. There are especially a lot of people living in Tilghman Island who work in food service (10.64%), management occupations (10.64%), and farm management occupations (8.20%).

In addition, many people in Tilghman Island have jobs in agriculture, more so than in most other communities in America. As a result, you will see quite a number of farms around town.

One interesting thing about the economy is that relatively large numbers of people worked from their home: 11.11% of the workforce. While this number may seem small overall, as a fraction of the total workforce this is high compared to the rest of the county. These workers are often telecommuters who work in knowledge-based, white-collar professions. For example, Silicon Valley has large numbers of people who telecommute. Other at-home workers may be self-employed people who operate small businesses out of their homes.

Setting & Lifestyle

Tilghman Island is a good choice for families with children because of several factors. Many other families with children live here, making it a place where both parents and children are more likely to develop social ties with other families. The town’s good public school district and large population of college-educated adults provide an environment conducive to academic success. Many people own their own single-family homes, providing areas for children to play and stability in the community. Finally, Tilghman Island’s overall crime rate is lower than average for the country.

The town is relatively quiet, having a combination of lower population density and few of those groups of people who have a tendency to be noisy. For example, Tilghman Island has relatively fewer families with younger children, and/or college students. Combined, this makes Tilghman Island a pretty quiet place to live overall. If you like quiet, you will probably enjoy it here.

Tilghman Island is also nautical, which means that parts of it are somewhat historic and touch the ocean or tidal bodies of water, such as inlets and bays. Such areas are often places that visitors and locals go for waterfront activities or taking in the scenery.

As is often the case in a small town, Tilghman Island doesn't have a public transportation system that people use for their commute.
